Little Goofballs

Aw, look: two sweetie-pie sisters. Peas in a pod. Here are a couple of down-to-earth gals that make birds suddenly appear and stars fall down from the sky.

Uh, oh, wait a second...

Hold up. What's happening?

Now this is just getting out of hand!

Okay, that's enough!

Sorry you had to witness that folks. It'll never happen again. Though I can't guarantee it.

Read Twenty-seven in 2011

Confession time: I love New Year's resolutions. I make new year's resolutions several times per year. I also love the first week of the semester, new school supplies, and fresh baked cookies. All crazy things.

Therefore, what kind of little blog would this be if I didn't tell you a little about my resolutions? Answer: a super lame blog. However, to save me from the inevitable shame that comes from failing on your resolutions, I'll share just one. This one, I'm pretty sure, is going to be my kind of fun: read 27 books this year. I hear some people out there actually shoot for 52 or 100. I'm being slightly more practical. Oh, also, at least half of them have to be non-fiction. Here they are so far:

Founding Mothers, by Cokie Roberts

Wuthering Heights, by Emily Bronte

John Adams, by David McCullough

Brigham Young: American Moses, by Leonard J. Arrington

Look at me! So intellectual! I'm starting off strong, banking on my tendency to wimp-out. Regardless, here's to a book-rich year.
